Why not grab yourself a pet raccoon?
Not bad plays, calls, ref, or game outcomes. No griping about 0:01 left on the clock against Texas.

Why do so many stories have to do with hookers and blow?I'll see your Marvin and raise you a Carl Pelini.
Yea and that doesn’t even include Vegas and a video floating around on it.Why do so many stories have to do with hookers and blow?
I know that's on field but it's got a singular quality that makes its mention not be like a bad play. In fact, it's a great play. You just have to appreciate it for what it is.
The entire Scott Baldwin saga. Very sad story.
I was a UNL student when Baldwin played FB for the Huskers. He showed some real potential in 1990. 92 carries for 579 yards with 5 TDs.
And then his battles with mental illness got the best of him.
1992: Violent assault on a woman, dismissed by the courts due to insanity. Eight months later, a photo of Scott Baldwin appeared on the front page of the Daily Nebraskan. Naked downtown. As police arrived and shot him. Paralyzing Baldwin from the waist down. I'm pretty sure I still have that rag.
2015: Died at the age of 45, succumbing to his mental and physical battles.
A lot like the story of Lawrence Phillips -- though Baldwin's story is much less known and discussed (and I'd bet many Husker fans under the age of 40 really don't know the story).
I suppose the most absurd part was the photo. I seem to recall the DN taking some heat for that.
